I think we should have a MN meet this summer, I know Tanner (derrty_deville), Brian (90Brougham350) and I have been planning a nice get together soon, so I thought it would be great if we could get some other MN members to join up too...Maybe AddisonII, Cadydaddy? I know those guys are in the twin cities too? I know there's some other MN residents I'm forgetting, so if I forgot your name (my apologies) speak up!

I would love to meet with everyone. Maybe we can find a place to "run" I would love to see if Nick's "bad ass CTS" is really that bad ass. Just love to run my N* when I get a chance. I have a buddy in FL with a stock 3.6 CTS...great car...would love to see how it would run with some improvements.

Are you all going to be able to get there without a bridge? That's some thing huh? Can't wait to hear the cause.

Pretty much smack dab in the middle of St. Paul.

We'll just have to stand on both banks of the river and yell across!

Aug 25 or 26 sounds good. Meet up and head to the fair after a while.

I gotta do another yard run the 11th and 12th.
Sounds like a plan for me on both accounts.

And I'd love to see how well a Northstar and 3.6L CTS can keep up with a 4.9 out of the hole!


I called Jesda yesterday regarding this, he's not sure if he's gonna go out to Seattle in August, and if he doesn't go out there, he's got no reason to detour thru MN on the way home.

We'll see if we can get him to come to the meet regardless. :)

Yes, but do you crush them out of the hole or in the top end?

Actually Nick, I don't. I got a new phone about two weeks after the meet and lost a lot of my numbers. PM me with it.

I'm gonna be up in Duluth the 18th and 19th, but other than that, I think I'm free every other weekend. How about you all?

I think the 25th or 26th is best. 25th sounds good if you can get it off.

Do you know of any other yards in the area? the Rosemount U-Pull hasnt had anything useful come in yet. What was that place Brian was talking about over in Wisconsin?

25th would work for me if it was after 4, otherwise I could join up if you wanted to meet up earlier. I get off work at 4 on Saturdays. I wanna try and save up my vacation days for the Tampa meet in November...I'm gonna need 4 days there if I wanna fly down and back and have enough time to screw around down there. IIRC, I only get 5 vacation days in a year, but maybe it's up to 7 because I've been working there over a year now.

Regarding junkyards, are you looking for a "U-Pull" type of joint or any sort of a junkyard? We've got tons of them down here, but I think the only U-Pull type of a place is the one in Rosemount. I don't recall the name or place of that one in Wisconsin Brian told us about, you'd have to ask him.

I've always heard that the best "u-pull-it" place is called "midnight auto supply" I understand they are everywhere. :eyes::tisk:

I stick to upulls or else the car is too old. Anything over 10 years old is usually not something anyone stocks. I think I may go back to rosemount to get all the white panels for the sedan. Other than that I just need a few other things, some wheels and a windshield which I might get somewhere around here.
